The Carrick golf course at Cameron House on Loch Lomond is one of Scotland's newest and finest championship standard golf courses and, arguably, the country's most breath-taking round. Sympathetically designed in keeping with its position within Scotland's first National Park, the par 71 course follows a traditional Scottish heathland style and, uniquely, straddles the rolling Lowlands and majestic Highlands of Scotland. With such great variety, challenge and playability, The Carrick is an exceptional, eminently enjoyable and memorable test of golf for players of all abilities.
While the blank canvas that was presented to Canadian designer Doug Carrick was outstanding, the architect justified his burgeoning reputation by formulating a majestic course. Stretched along the Loch Lomond shoreline, the course is bordered by delightful banks of heather and gorse, which are typical of this classically Scottish landscape.
Despite its low-lying situation, the course drains remarkably well thanks to its state-of-the-art construction, a fact that has been reflected in the Carrick already having hosted the best European ladies for a fully sanctioned European Tour event.
Keep your eyes peeled for the amazing wildlife of Loch Lomond - you can expect to see kingfishers, oystercatchers, great crested grebes, lapwings and otters.

Carricks signature 14th offers players with magnificent views over Loch Lomond. To add to the drama, the tee shot is played from a 60 yard elevated tee to a well protected green surrounded by 5 bunkers- a daunting prospect to say the least...
